“Secom”, Islington: dirty great plug

“Secom” burglar alarm, Islington • And after yesterday’s “rebadged” Secom, here’s a very dirty example of the real thing, featuring the bland “UK plug” shape usually only seen on the Japanese conglomerate’s sounders and thus presumably a proprietary design (though they do use rectangular boxes too). Sometimes these deltas have neat rectangular strobes on the base as here, and that’s as exciting as it gets. • Spotted: Goswell Road, Islington, London, EC1, England, 2006 • Politics: In the Labour constituency of Islington South and Finsbury
